As the heart of the home, the kitchen is somewhere we spend most of our time. Whether it’s cooking, reading, socialising or having an afternoon cup of tea, we can often find ourselves passing many an hour in the kitchen.

Because we spend so much time there, it’s important to make it feel homely and unique to you. Here at Magnet we’ve put together a few tips on how to accessorise your kitchen, to give it that personal touch.

When you’re having your new kitchen designed, think about the bigger picture. Opting for cabinets in bold hues or worktops in unusual materials is a great way to add personality to your décor scheme. Or if you prefer a more subtle approach, you can also stick to neutral shades for the main fixtures and use details such as taps and drawer handles to give your kitchen a certain look and feel.

Why not make a bold statement with a bright red toaster, or add in some copper pans for a rustic look? The best thing about doing this is that you can constantly update the look of your kitchen with minimal effort. Not to mention that matching your colour scheme with everyday items like crockery and placemats means your kitchen always looks neat, even if there’s a mug left on the side or a few dishes on the draining board!

Beyond colour, nothing changes the atmosphere of a room quite like lighting. Whether you’re working with natural light streaming through the window, spotlights under cupboards or a large central light, it’s a great way to change the mood of the room.

Another great way to accessorise the kitchen is through innovation. Magnet has a number of innovative additions to bring something extra into your Kitchen. Add in a Shelf Plus unit to help display your favourite plants and accessories in a way that reflects your personality without taking up valuable counter space.

If you love music, you could even bring the party into the kitchen with a Sound Bar speaker system built into your kitchen cabinets, ensuring you’re always entertained. After all, what better accessory is there than happiness?
